Blackburn interested in Blackpool manager Appleton

Blackburn Rovers are showing considerable interest in Blackpool boss Michael Appleton.

Rovers are without a manager after sacking Henning Berg last month and the Seasiders gaffer is the only man on their list of candidates according to managing director Derek Shaw.

"I can confirm that we have made an official approach to Blackpool FC about our interest in speaking to Michael Appleton," he told Blackburn's official website.

"This is the only candidate we have approached for the manager's job."

Former West Bromwich Albion assistant Appleton has lost just two of 12 games at the helm at Bloomfield Road since replacing Ian Holloway from Portsmouth in November.
